I love broccoli….I know that it’s one of those foods you either hate or love, so in order to get my husband to get some veggies into his system, I thought I’d try out a little broccoli remix.  I found a recipe online, but added a few different ingredients and changed the cheeses up….these came out AWESOME.  We literally demolished all of them, and I kinda wished I had made more…

The great thing about these are that the broccoli doesn’t dominate the taste, and all the other elements just meld together wonderfully.  The Honey Dijon is a must - it pairs perfectly!
